What's Cookin'?

Now that I've given you the grocery list for the week, I'll show you the menu. Breakfasts will be cream of wheat x2 (on hand because it's stupid cheap at Winco) cereal x2 (on hand because I have about 37 boxes) Baked oatmeal x2 (I'll bake and freeze this on Saturday) Scrambled eggs, toast, sausage links x2 all will have fruit on the side Lunches will be mostly sandwiches since the kids go back to school. We'll have egg salad (Hello Easter), tuna, and good old PB&J. We also have burritos and corn dog muffins leftover in the freezer from last baking day. All lunches will be rounded out with fruit, yogurt, homemade cookies and a drink. Dinners are Baked chicken with homemade gravy, rice and mixed veggies. I'm going to use the leftover chicken to make chicken stroganoff Hamburgers and homemade jojo potatoes Easter Dinner: Baked ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, shrimp salad, deviled eggs and homemade rolls Leftovers on Monday (Woo hoo!) Ham and potato chowder with homemade corn bread Tuna salad and baked yams The added bonus this week is that I'll freeze the ham bone and chicken carcass for later and we'll have enough burger patties left for another dinner in the next couple of weeks. Desserts are going to be homemade cookies, cake bombs, strawberry shortcake and chocolate pudding pie.

There you have it. Easter week menu on a budget.

Until next time, rock on my friends!
